The URCA Handbook is currently being developed as a resource to help guide students towards experiential education opportunities, URCA seeks to enhance undergraduates’ time at UCSB through participation in research and creative activities. Together, these programs work to foster individuals who are prepared to apply their learned skills towards their future personal, academic, and professional goals.
The URCA Handbook is a resource designed to address common student questions and concerns.
This is an evolving document as we get to know students and what questions you have, so please don't be shy about reaching out.
If there is a question related to our programming that isn't answered here or on our main page we want you to ask us-- others are probably wondering about it too. If you step up and let us know what's unclear, that helps us identify what we need to work on explaining better.
